Motorists face above inflation increase in the cost of driving tests and licence fees

Millions of motorists are facing inflation-busting rises in driving test fees and other licence charges announced today.

The cost of updating your driving licence after ten years will jump by 14 per cent from £17.50 to £20: at a time when millions of unwitting drivers face renewing their photo-card licences for the first time - and the prospect of a £1,000 fine if they fail to do so.

Drivers seeking a duplicate licence to replace one that is lost, or updating their licence after the removal of endorsements, also face the same 14 per cent rise.

From March 30, the cost of a standard car practical L-test test will go up from £56.50 to £62 - an increase of 9.7 per cent.

Learner drivers taking their car test out of normal office hours will face an 11.9 per cent rise from £67 to £75. The cost of a car theory test will rise from £30 to £31 (up 3.3 per cent).

Motorcyclists will see a 13 per cent rise in the cost of their weekday test (from £80 to £90.50), and a whacking 55 per cent rise in the cost of their module 1 element (from £10 to £15).

The rises were announced today by the Government's Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and its Driving Standards Agency (DSA), which said the hikes were necessary to cover costs.

So tests have gone up by at most £10 and renewing a licence once every 10 years has gone up £2.50.

Is it just me or is that not a big deal?

If you're happy to pay £20 for a piece of plastic and a piece of A4 paper then that's fine by me. It just doesn't seem to be a very 'hot deal'

Have they not averaged out the inflation over (for example) a 10 year period. Appears to be misreporting to me.
